Posts Tagged ‘The Studio-A Place for Learning’

New Year-page0001I just read an article about the top New Year’s Resolutions and how most are broken. ¬†ūüė¶

The first is to lose weight or get fit. ¬†The second is to quit smoking. ¬†But the third is to ¬†learn something new. ¬†It’s an exciting resolution…there are so many things to learn.

Well, we can help you with this one so that it is not broken! ¬†Come to The Studio-A Place for Learning and pick up a new skill or hobby. ¬†Learn to paint, sew, crochet, decorate cookies, become better with social media, quilt, make jewelry, and much, much more. ¬†You can see the current schedule by going to The Studio’s website here.

Consider learning something new this year. ¬†It’s not too late to make that resolution….and KEEP IT!

The kids painted some beautiful “Birch Trees at Night” in their class yesterday. ¬†Super work! ¬†They look great.

And I had a teaching assistant at all my classes yesterday. ¬†Daisy is a one-year-old Westie who is a neighbor’s pup. ¬†They had to go out-of-town on an emergency last Sunday night and so Daisy came to stay with us. ¬†She is an adorable, sweet little girl…but make no mistake she is ALL terrier…full of life and mischief! ¬†We are enjoying her.

I spent some time working on another Infinity Scarf.  We have a Beginning Crochet class coming up this Sunday at The Studio and I made one sample scarf but decided to do another and make it a little smaller so the students can see the difference.

Lincoln was nice enough to model this one for me since Janet wasn’t here to model like she did the first one. ¬†ūüôā

Be sure to check out the calendar for classes coming up at The Studio-A Place for Learning.

January 2015 1st Saturday Paint Party

January 2015 1st Saturday Paint Party

The 1st Saturday Paint Party yesterday was painting fruit in miniature. ¬†And boy, did everyone do a great job! ¬†These turned out so good. ¬†We worked in acrylic on 6″x6″ stretched canvas.

Each month on the 1st Saturday we have a Paint Party where we try something different each time. ¬†The great part is that all supplies are included so all you need to do is make a reservation and show up. ¬†Then after a couple of hours you will go home with a wonderful completed painting! ¬†Why don’t you join us next time – February 7th at 3 pm?

We had a fun Pet Portrait Paint Party yesterday with wonderful portraits created.  I can share a few with you today but others will have to wait until after Christmas as they are going to be wonderful presents for friends and family.

Everyone did fabulous work.  Martin was painted twice by this sweet girl and her mom.  They did great paintings.  And Rebecca and Vivian did beautiful paintings of their sweet kitties.

Good work everyone!

Last night I took a class at The Studio (instead of teaching one!) and we made a Sock Monkey.

He is so cute.  Sandra Charles taught us and boy is she good.

Thanks Sandra for being so patient and making it so much fun! ¬†I can’t wait to try it again…this time it will be a “Sock Puppy”!

2014-12-05 05 41 58_resizedLast night at Art Class I had a delightful group of young people come to paint with me for the first time. ¬†It was a brother and sister and cousin. ¬†Their grandmother “made” them do it. ¬†LOL ¬†They all did a wonderful job even though they told me they had not painted this way before.

And in the end they were glad that she MADE them do it.  I hope I get the chance to work with them again soon.  Great job guys.  Keep Painting!
